Let’s Visit Tokyo – Tokamachi Niigata – Photo Edition
Hi everyone, I am sorry that this morning you won’t have the pleasure to enjoy one of our Let’s Visit Tokyo video. I left last Friday for a few days of “piece” in trouble times to get some rest, my destination Tokamachi in Niigata.
I am not sure that I will be able to shoot some video for you of this place since it is snowing like hell and that I left my ND Filter at home… However I shot some photos for your quickly yesterday showing how much snow felt there… Around our hotel there is between 2 to 2.5m of snow, with “Snow Walls” on each side of the roads and many roads lost forever (first picture in the gallery) where only the Stop Signe placed 3m above the street can be seen.
We saw also many houses or stores literally “swallowed” by snow where people were forced to use their second floor windows as main entrance.
Sure this may sound ridiculous to you if you are living in Canada for example, but for me… well, just WOW.
Anyway I’ll try my best to shoot something here but don’t expect much!
